Report – Amanda Ribas vs. Michelle Waterson Targeted For UFC Event On March 26.

A strawweight matchup between the #10 ranked contender, Amanda Ribas, and division veteran, the #9 rated, Michelle Waterson is currently in the works for a UFC Fight Night event on March 26. — with a location or venue for the event yet to be determined by the organization.

Minas Gerais native, Ribas recently returned to the winner’s enclosure on ‘Fight Island’ in October at UFC 267 — defeating former Invicta FC strawweight titleholder, Virna Jandiroba in a unanimous decision win.

For Waterson, the former Invicta FC atomweight champion has been out of action since May where she suffered a unanimous decision loss to common-foe, Marina Rodriguez in the main event of UFC Vegas 26. MMA Fighting reporters, Damon Martin, and Guilherme Cruz were first to report the pairing.

11-2 as a professional, Ribas suffered her first promotional loss earlier this year as part of the UFC 257 card once again in Abu Dhabi, UAE — dropping an eventual second round knockout loss to Rodriguez.

The 28-year-old Brazilian had enjoyed a promotional-perfect four-fight winning spree prior to her loss to Rodriguez — which featured wins over Emily Whitmire, Mackenzie Dern, Randa Markos, and Paige VanZant.

For Waterson, the veteran Jackson-Wink MMA mainstay briefly returned to the winner’s enclosure back in September of last year in a split decision win over former Invicta FC strawweight best, Angela Hill, before her loss to Rodriguez.

Enjoying an 11-fight Octagon tenure to date, Waterson has defeated the likes of common-foe, VanZant, as well as Cortney Casey, Felice Herrig, and one-time title challenger, Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

The UFC Fight Night event is slated to take place on March 26. — with a high-stakes, potential light heavyweight title-eliminator between former division champion, Jan Blachowicz, and the surging, #3 ranked, Aleksandar Rakic slated to take headlining status at the showcase event.
